TAPECODE 986.01

The artist performs three vignettes for the camera that break through internal boundaries and challenge the confines of role and identity. In "Composite Body," a modified dry-erase board is used in a process of creating a self-constructed body. In "The Mad Chef," the performer sifts flour in discovery of uncharted territories. In "Magic Trick," she chews bubble gum and then blows a large, pink balloon bubble out of her ass in the spirit of Le Petomane. These vignettes have also been presented as live performances.
